Selling to drunks? June event presentations

Jul 10, 2014

Section 141 of the 2003 Licensing Act prohibits the sale of alcohol to a drunken person. However, it is one of the most uncommonly prosecuted offences, raising questions over the level of recognition of the offence and difficulties for trade practice or enforcement.

Could further awareness, enforcement or reconsideration of section 141 be an opportunity for reducing alcohol-related crime and disorder?

On the 16th June in London, the Alcohol Academy co-hosted an event to explore the offence of section 141, in partnership with Alcohol Research UK and the LDAPF.

A briefing from the workshop is currently being developed, but presentations from the day are available below.

Please get in touch if you have any queries.
